In 2015 Derrick Henry won every award imaginable for a college football player in a single season, including the Heisman Trophy, and on Saturday night he received another honor from the Jacksonville Suns minor league baseball team.
A native of Yulee, Florida, a community just 24 miles from Jacksonville, Henry was a high school football sensation and five star college recruit. Henry went on to break the nations high school career rushing record before moving on to the University of Alabama where he cemented his name in the history of college football greats.
On Saturday night, the Suns, a minor league affiliate of the Miami Marlins honored Henry with throwing out the first pitch on "Derrick Henry Bobblehead Night" before their game at Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville Park.
Henry's first pitch wasn't exactly a strike, as it was high and wide right, still it wasn't a bad effort from the rookie. He is the first member of his Titans class to have his own bobblehead night.
Henry and the rest of his Titans teammates are enjoying the final days of their vacation before returning to Nashville for the star of training camp on July, 29.
